2021 Reading Goals and Plans

I usually wait until mid to late January before posting my reading plans or goals. Mainly because I'm very optimistic about my superhuman capabilities during the start of a new year but much of that enthusiasm fades over the next couple of weeks. I tend to believe I can read more than ever but reality is usually closer to how much I averaged in previous years. So, to allow myself the opportunity to dream big and then plan well, I take the ambitious goals for a road test during the first couple of weeks of the year. If they still look achievable, great! If not, I will part ways with those that are a stretch.  The numbers I have an arbitrary number set in Goodreads for this year but it's not a number I will quote as I tend to change it often and it is intended to factor in the many picture books I read with my kids.

Read-Along: Lord of the Rings

LOTR readalong

I LOVE the LOTR series! To this day, they remain my favorite books (and movies) of all time! I usually never like movies based on books, but LOTR is an exception. Eva @ A Striped Armchair, Maree @ Just Add Books, Teresa @ Shelf Loveand the Clare @ The Literary Omnivore are hosting a read-along for the LOTR series and I am excited to join in. I have actually been planning to re-read the LOTR books this year, and am eager to discuss this series with my fellow readers.

This read-along runs from January 2010 till April, and covers the following books:

* January: The Hobbit
* February: The Fellowship of the Ring
* March: The Two Towers here
* April: The Return of the King

Yay! I'm so glad you're joining in. :) Are you reading all four or skipping The Hobbit?

I'm glad I am joining as well!! I will be reading The Hobbit as well, which is the only one of the four that I haven't previously read. But I will start it only after Jan 13th, since right now, I am on vacation and my book is sitting on my shelf at home.

I'm glad you're reading The Hobbit. :) It's pretty short (less than 300 pgs in my edition) and stylistically a lot simpler than LOTR, so I doubt you'll have a problem catching up.
